The Black Hoof Opens on Dundas West

Posted by Tim / October 16, 2008

The Black HoofThe Black Hoof has opened in the former space of Cocktail Molotov on Dundas West. Billing itself as a charcuterie, the smallish restaurant is a partnership between the former owner of Little Italy's Colbalt and the ex charcutier at Amuse Bouche, Lucien and Canoe.

Serving dinner and late night drinks, The Black Hoof has a number of beers on tap, wine and a short menu that features foie gras, a prosciutto tasting, and cabbage and bone marrow soup.

The Black Hoof will be open from Thursday through Mondays from 6pm and will be serving food until 2am on weekends. Here's a look at the complete menu:

Black Hoof Menu

Is it just me or is charcuterie one of the big food trends of 2008? Food critics raved last year about Chris McDonald's Cava and Riverside's Pic Nic has been drawing a crowd. I suspect The Black Hoof will do the same and attract plenty of hungry stomachs from the bars on Ossington.

The Black Hoof is at 938 Dundas West. The phone is 416.551.8854

the place is a total joke. the food is fine, the drinks are pathetic and obnoxious, not to mention the snobby bartender making them. she made us feel like we were total idiots, but we're the ones paying for them, she told us vodka is a total joke and the worst thing the poles had come up with, poles? for those of you wondering she meant polish, hadnt heard that since the 80s. she proceeded to make the most watered down manhatten we had ever tasted. boooooo for the black hoof. big booo.

I am outraged by the fact that this restaurant serves horse meat. This is absolutely sickening that a restaurant in Toronto is serving (in my opinion) one of the most beautiful and loyal creatures of the world as a main course.

Let this be known...Horse meat is not regulated. The horses that go to slaughter and end up on "your" dinner plate are peoples once loved pets, race horses and riding horses. They are refered to the "unwanted" horses of the world, and are not bred and/or raised for people to eat. Check out the list of drugs that are legal to administer to racehorses....that should be enough to make you sick.

An additional note to add..these animals are not being slaughtered humanely. Don't believe me?....check out:

Feel sick yet?

The drugs that are administered to these animal are not regulated, and are not by any means fit for human consumption.

This all happens in your "backyard"..slaughter plants are located in Alberta and Quebec.

Please, I ask if a manager and/or cook of this restaurant reads this posting that they remove this item from the menu immediately, not for the fact that horses are intelligent, brave and loyal creatures, but also for the safety of their customers.

Thank you.

You're almost 3 years late, Captain PETA.

I heard they're going to begin hunting seals for their fur.

Perhaps you could comment on that too.

Lighten up. Don't be so provincial. Horse meat is eaten all over the world and is often considered a delicacy. If you don't like, don't order it.
